Travellers denied access to popular Coast getaway
A large number of travellers were sent packing after Noosa Police had a busy weekend on Noosa's North Shore.
Police patrolled the popular Coast getaway on both Saturday and Sunday.
In what was a timely reminder for all national park users, up to 40 vehicles were denied access to the North Shore for not carrying a permit or possessing the additional Restricted Area Access Permits.
Noosa Police officer-in-charge Ben Carroll stated a further eight infringement notices were issued for speeding, unregistered motor vehicle, and exceed seating capacity.
A Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service Penalty Infringement Notice was issued by police to a driver without a vehicle permit.
Police also assisted six hikers who became lost on the Great Cooloola Walk.
In a sign that the drink driving message is sinking in, 280 random breath tests were conducted by police across the weekend, and zero returned a positive result.
